Ripe and juicy peaches are one of the best parts about summer. We’ve narrowed it down to our favorite 8 Summer Peach Recipes, all Mediterranean diet inspired.
Does anyone else remember that Seinfeld episode where there are a certain type of peaches only ripe for a few days every year? Kramer can’t wait to enjoy them but right before their peak ripeness he enters a building that’s been fumigated and loses his taste. He can’t taste the peaches and has to end up giving his bag of peaches to Newman.
I think of that episode every time I enjoy a peach.
While we are lucky that peaches are ripe for more than just a few days, there is definitely a peak peach season. Depending on where you live, peaches are usually in season from mid-July to September. That’s probably why August is national peach month.
Mediterranean Diet Peach Recipes
The Mediterranean diet focuses on incorporating more fruits into your meals. Peaches not only are great on their own but make a great addition to –
- breakfast recipes like oatmeal and yogurt

- baked with chicken
Perhaps one of our favorite ways to enjoy them is thrown on the grill…so delicious!
